Knit a uterus for your member of Congress March 19, 2012

Filed under: crafts — alpha @ 6:20 pm

Thank you Jezebel, for suggesting that we “Knit a Uterus to Donate to a Congressman in Need.”

Remember when we decided that Rick Santorum needed a uterus of his very own so he’d leave ours alone? Well, now there’s a similar idea being proposed for the members of Congress across this great land who seem so insistent on getting all up in our lady parts since they’re jealous they don’t have any of their own. So how exactly are we going to make that happen, since we can’t, you know, give them actual uteruses? Enter Government Free VJJ, a project which aims to have have ladies knit or crochet lovely versions of uteruses (plus cervixes and vulvas) and mail them to their representatives.

 So kind of you to provide fabulous patterns for such wonderful projects as the Snatchel, Felt Cervix, and Happy Uterus.


Today is a good day for some craftivism.

    I love the happy uterus with the smiley face. I’d love to see some Dems hijack this craftivism and wear these as hats when they go to vote, just to say “Haha we have our own! We don’t have to control our constituents’ ladybusiness!” :-):-)

  2. I have written some operating instructions for the Womb. You can find them on my blog, janehurst.blogspot.com. Enjoy!!!
